Lyda Krewson Won't Seek Reelection As St. Louis Mayor, Will Retire From Post In April

St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson has announced she will not be seeking re-election and plans to retire in April.

Krewson has been the city’s mayor for four years. In a press conference Wednesday afternoon Krewson said after 23 years of serving as an elected official she had decided to step away. The 68-year-old said her birthday over the past weekend had made her reflect on what she wanted to do with the rest of her life.

Krewson had been expected to face St. Louis treasurer Tishuara Jones and Alderwoman Cara Spencer in next year’s election. Jones, a Democrat, declared her candidacy earlier this month.
